What is the fastest time you can travel all the way around the world by flying on commercial airlines?

It doesn't matter how many different airlines but no Concorde.

I think, it was late 1980's B747 flew around the world without landing. Just a couple of times refueling. It took 52 hours flying non stop SFO to SFO.

sin-sfo ua806, ex sin 0645, eta sfo 0925 - still day 1
sfo-fra ua900, ex sfo 1410, eta fra 1010 - day 2
fra-sin sq025, ex fra 1235, eta sin 0635 - day 3

that makes it 47 hours and 50 minutes.

am not sure if it counts, as we are looking at only 33181kms, eg not the entire circumference of 40000 kms
